McAfee Tuesday patched a vulnerability in SecurityCenter, a management tool in the vendor's consumer products, which could have allowed remote attackers to execute code and gain control over affected PCs.

Hackers could exploit the flaw to run code on a vulnerable PC with the privileges of the logged on user, said Steve Manzuik, research manager at eEye, Aliso Viejo, Calif. Researchers at eEye discovered the flaw and alerted McAfee on July 19.

The exploit could lead to the complete compromise of an affected PC, enabling attackers to hit the rest of a network with malware or launch denial of service attacks against other networks, Manzuik added.
